Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen!

Volkswagen knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Golf SportWagen's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Golf SportWagen. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Golf SportWagen may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Volkswagen Golf SportWagen battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Volkswagen Golf SportWagen won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen's engine run smoother. See Volkswagen's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2018 Golf SportWagen in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Volkswagen Golf SportWagen can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Volkswagen Golf SportWagen steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Volkswagen Golf SportWagen's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Volkswagen Golf SportWagen services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Volkswagen Golf SportWagen engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Volkswagen Golf SportWagen radiator? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it.

  • When should I have Volkswagen Golf SportWagen alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my Volkswagen Golf SportWagen need high mileage oil? If your Volkswagen Golf SportWagen has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Volkswagen? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Volkswagen Golf SportWagen to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
